The Center for Clinical and Translational Science is currently accepting applications for a pilot grant program for Academic Year 2020-2021. The grant will be funded for up to $30,000 annually for two years, with funding beginning in November 2020. The deadline to submit a letter of intent is noon on July 1.
Among other things, the CCTS grant program seeks to foster outstanding new clinical and translational health research at UIC by supporting the development of preliminary data that can be used to launch new National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other externally-funded research proposals. It also encourages interdisciplinary teams of investigators that spans across colleges and campus to develop collaborations or new research avenues.
